Dead on. Double standard - and a ridiculous one at that.

Joy and Hayley sound like they were meant to sing together. Beautiful, definitive version of this song.

I'm still worried that Rdio is the Betamax to Spotify's VHS (yep, I'm that old), but I sincerely hope that's not the case.

Spotify's only advantage now is that songs tend to load and play a tiny bit...

Fascinating insight on a side of things the average music listener doesn't get to hear about very often. Really great.

Pretty sure that sound I just heard is Noel yelling "fuckin' bloody hell no" from across the Atlantic.

One of my all-time favorite bands (I'm not kidding - if you've never heard "Windmills" or "Crowing", you are missing out.)

Love the new song.

This was the band that got me into music - and this is my favorite album of theirs. Thanks for doing it justice.
Great piece.

It's not so much illegal downloads as it is the state of the industry in general - just about everything sells less copies now than records did four years ago.

How the heck can you rank an album you haven't even heard yet?

Also, I love AWKIF, but I think this is overrating it by a lot.

Haha - good one there.

I really love these songs though - there's an energy and a joy that just leaps out of so many of them. And to the question of them being "inspired" - first of all, I agree...

Yep. The start of the end of the era where the entire band was miserable.

Personally, I absolutely love what I'm hearing.

Love the photo...but I'm not sure it works as the cover of a pop punk album.

I love Franklin - it's a beautiful song - but I'm not hearing a "Disney song" or a song written for "teens" here. I'm also not hearing a lesser song - I'm hearing a kickass pop rock love song....

THIS.

Although I'm not really hearing Carly Rae here. But that album is so underrated.

People on this site really need to respect good pop music. It's every bit as valid as every other genre.

Do you understand the meaning of the word "melody"?

Agree with all of this. I'm with you on the lyric video. I usually hate lyric videos, but this one is just awesome.

The people criticizing the lyrics are cracking me up too (and are wrong), but I guess on a site where most people seem to think Jesse Lacey is the second coming of Bob Dylan, I shouldn't be surprised.
